Parking

As a friendly reminder, please be aware of where you are parking around the studio. On the south side of the building, other businesses have spots close to their entrances reserved – no parking will be allowed in these spots for WDC families (green/red signs are posted). Also, on the north side of the building, please do not park in front of the garage doors. We understand parking can be tricky on some evenings and we very much appreciate your cooperation and understanding. You can also park on the service road on the south side of our building.
Please view the graphic and read the important information about our drop-off/pick up spot and the flow of traffic in our parking lot.

PLEASE NOTE:

* We ask that you please do not drop off or pick up dancers in front of the doors.

* When picking up at the Dancer Drop Off area, please do not wait at that spot if your dancer is not there and ready to be picked up. Plan to circle the building again or find a parking spot and wait until they are ready to come out to the car.

Please help keep our dancers safe and our parking lot flowing by following this parking plan. Thank you!
